Computex 2016 | Asus ROG GX800 to include two 330 W PSUs and an integrated mechanical keyboard
The successor to the current GX700 is becoming less of a notebook and more of an actual desktop. The GX800 will purportedly come with a 330 W power supply (plus another 330 W PSU with the optional dock) to fuel its Nvidia SLI configuration, Intel K series CPU, and liquid cooling solution. Details about the processor and graphics options have not yet been revealed, which makes us believe that Pascal may be under the hood. The rear "Hydro Overclocking System" docking station from the GX700 is making its return for memory, CPU, and GPU overclocking possible.
During the massive Asus presentation, the manufacturer revealed just a few key details on the GX800 including its ability to run an unspecified Intel CPU up to 4.4 GHz and an unspecified GeForce SLI setup at 1428 MHz with memory overclocked to 2800 MHz. Additionally, Asus is boasting its integrated "MechTAG" mechanical keyboard for improved tactility when gaming. Its keys will be individually lit with multiple colors available. The GX800 and MSI GT80/83 series will soon be the only major notebooks available with integrated mechanical keys. While the GT80 utilizes Cherry Brown keys, Asus has not specified the actuator for the mechanical keyboard.
No prices, SKUs, or launch dates have been officially announced for the GX800.
